HL Deb 22 March 1928 vol 70 cc570-1

My Lords, I beg to move that leave be given to me to withdraw the Bill. My reason for wishing to withdraw it is that after the Bill was introduced it was found, owing to certain facts which came to light, that there was some need for amendment. I think it will be convenient for your Lordships' House that these amendments should be put into a Bill rather than be brought forward on the Committee stage. Therefore, I have introduced the Importation of Plumage (Prohibition) Act, 1921, Amendment (No. 2) Bill, which is the second Bill on the Order Paper to-day.

Moved, That leave be given to withdraw the Bill.—(Lord Danesfort.)

On Question, Motion agreed to, and Bill withdrawn accordingly.
